My wife is of the "It all sounds the same except some is worse" variety.

But I have secretly caught her singing along, when she's caught she gets that "wasn't me" look.

jglynn....

Exactly the reaction from my loving wife...INCLUDING the times she does actually groove to it but hates to admit it...I at least got her to admit she likes Jerry Band in comparison to the Dead...(but boy, does she HATE Donna)

"...can't win for tryin!" ;-)

I recently watched the "day of the dead" video I taped off MTV back in 87. The VJ carolyn hellman is in the parking lot at Giants Stadium and she's with some comedian. She's asking heads what their fav tune is and the comedian goes, "the last one so I can go home"

I thought that was a funny line

I might have been at one of those '87 Giant's stadium shows, I remember going to a show sort of spur of the moment with some pals and scoring a tic for $15 bucks from a station wagon full of heads. Then once inside made my way to the 'floor' and was dancin' and having a good time and ran into my little brother and his freinds - I didn't even know he was going to the show. I also recall them playing some unfamiliar tunes - of course I can't remember which. All I really know is it was post comma show and a bit lackluster with a few shining moments.

Did you say "station wagon full of heads" and "scored a ticket for $15".

This may be just a coincidence of all, but:

1. I owned a station wagon (79 Cutlass Cruiser)
2. I was at those shows with a large group of compadres
3. We had an extra ticket
4. We sold that ticket
5. I believe the sale price was somewhere between $10 and $20

You? Me? Perhaps. I do, however, like the odds.

You never know - do you recall selling the Tic to a guy on a skateboard as you were driving into the parking lot?

Dude, you're creeping me out.

But, adjusting for inflation, I belive you still owe me $135.

I was in high school and inherited the malibu classic station wagon. Blue with the wood paneling on the sides. Once all the dead stickers were put on it was referred to as "the dead mobile"

I had a '78 Cutlass Cruiser! And yes, it was my father's Oldsmobile. Hand me down from my parents that I drove thoughout high school and into college. The color was "camel" (a light tan).

I was nowhere near Giants stadium in 87, but it was the summer my Uncle game me a taped copy of his Europe 72 record. That was the first step towards getting on the bus.

anyone remember that clean '65 Rambler on the west coast back in the 1980s... always there before the show and always there after the show. KYA in vibraone. That was a real dead machine.

that a real pretty handle shorthopper, did your wife come up with it ?

Mine was dark brown. We called it the "Stealth Wagon". At many shows while the local authorities were targeting sticker-laden VW's and the like, we slipped under the radar in the family-friendly all-american fun wagon. Nobody in here but us law-abiding republicans.

Hah, I know what you mean. It was like having a Klingon cloaking device engaged. Immunity from even the most critical suspecting police eye.
